This symposium represents Jim Evans, Professor of Metallurgy Emeritus and the P. Malozemoff Professor Emeritus in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, University of California, Berkeley, which he joined in 1972. He is the author/co-author of three books and over 300 papers. His research deals with rate phenomena governing the productivity of processes for producing metals and other materials. This has involved investigations of wide ranging technologies such as aluminum reduction cells, electromagnetic casters, chemical vapor deposition, fluidized bed electrodes and batteries. His current projects include mathematical modeling of the treatment of molten metals, wireless monitoring of the electrolytic cells used for producing aluminum, recovery of water and copper from semiconductor industry waste streams, modeling of new technology for producing titanium and lithium batteries for energy storage in wireless technology. <p> Abstracts included from the following areas: <ul> <li>Materials production <li>Fluid flow in materials production <li>Mass transport in materials production <li>Modeling of materials production <li>Electrochemical phenomena in materials production <li>Electromagnetic phenomena in materials production <li>Sensors and measurement of physical parameters in high temperature and hostile environments <li>Control of environmental impact of materials production <li>Novel cells for aqueous electrolysis <li>Novel cells for molten salt electrolysis <li>Mathematical modeling in light metals production <li>Novel batteries <li>Novel leaching reactors </ul>
